Cynthia Samour, upstate McDonald's franchise owner of  two of the Greer fast food restaurants, presented a $1,000 check to Crestview Elementary School Thursday before the start of its successful musical, "Wild and Wooly Big Fat Bully", at the J. Harley Bonds Center.

The presentation was part of a $15,000 investment through the McCreative Kids Art Grants program the past three years of the McDonald's owner/operators of the Upstate, Western North Carolina and Northeast Georgia.

The funds help teachers cultivate creativity within the classroom and promote individual expressions of children. The grant invites educators to nurture this skill through educational programs that will grow a more innovative and creative community.

Crestview performed the first play of its drama program Thursday night and had its annual Parade Friday morning featuring the students dressed in character and floats designed of a book read during the school year. Hundreds of parents and neighboring residents lined the driveway during the parade.

Crestview has been a leader in nurturing skills of creative thinking and artistic expression.
